Explore the high places and learn essential skills
Our mountain expeditions are a great way of exploring the wild places and learning or consolidating mountain skills at the same time.
Whether you're new to the mountains or an experienced hillwalker you'll learn essential skills that will enable you to move amongst the mountains with more confidence and enjoyment. You'll also be more aware of your surroundings and environmental issues.
f you're thinking about doing the Summer Mountain Leader award it's a great introduction and if you're about to do the ML assessment it's a great way to practice and enhance the skills needed under the mentor of our experienced staff.
We tailor our mountain expeditions to suit you or your group and they can be for one, two or three days including at least one overnight 'wild camp'.
We can provide all necessary equipment including tents and the expedition will include the following:
- party leadership
- group management
- food and nutrition
- Route choice
- safeguarding individuals
- confidence roping and security on steep ground
- mountain etiquette
- environmental issues
- flora and fauna of the fells
- emergency procedures including mountain rescue
- access & conservation
- erosion control
If preparing for an ML assessment we can concentrate on specific areas that you request.
Even if you're not practicing for an assessment our mountain expeditions are also a great way to enjoy the wild and remote high ground and do something you wouldn't normally do or didn't have the confidence to do, with experienced instructors.
Some of the challenges featured on bigwalks are ideally suited as mountain expeditions - doing the challenge over a longer period, at a more relaxed pace and 'wild camping' en-route.
